Tangent was commissioned by Aisin, a large B2B automotive supplier in Japan, to create installation art for Milan Design Week 2016. The installation featured many cogs precisely meshing with each other, symbolizing the company's commitment to precise and dedicated performance. The heavily perforated cogs allowed light to shine through, creating a poetic scene on the floor reminiscent of dappled sunlight in woodlands. The work was selected as one of the five Milano Design Award winners out of a total of 1,135 exhibitions showcased during the fair.
